this weekend i'm buying an external dvd/cd burner,since my computer burner got fried.i plan all weekend on the transfer of my shn/flac files to dvd,i know to burn them to data files but my question is do i burn one folder at a time or do i put 3 folders at once or does it matter?i'm afraid to overlap the files.another question when i want to burn a show,i know to load the files to my hard drive but do i have to reburn the shn/flac files back to the dvd?this is all new to me,thanks in advance.will be making a list so i can start sending everyone shows.

1. check out newegg for some great deals on external harddrives:

http://www.newegg.com/

2. burn as many folders as you like, provided they don't exceed the capacity of the dvd disk you are burning/copying to; no worries about overlapping. of course, depending on the power of your processor and whether you are copying to an external or internal drive, might leave you hanging until the transfer is complete.

3. when moving from dvd to your local drive, always COPY, never MOVE. if done so, then no worries about your original files ... they'll still be there for later transfer/use.

I am in the process of trying to burn my files to DVD. I ordered 5 10 packs of PlayO DVD+R DL (dual layer - 8.5GB). None of them worked - beware! Is there any DVD that you would suggest?
